An incomplete copper alloy Roman T-shape brooch dating to the period AD 50-150. Half of the pin, the lower part of the bow and the catchplate are missing. The brooch measures 23.98mm in length, 23.10mm in wingspan, 1.85mm in thick and weighs 4.03g.

The head is composed by two tubular wings divided by a central pin slot. Both the pin and the axis bar are still in place but the first one is old broken just under the head. From the upper part of the wings extends the bow, creating a 90 degrees angle with the head. On the top of the bow was a single loop, now broken. The external surface of the bow is decorated with a rectangular shape recess on the centre of which are smaller lozenge shape shollow compartmens originally filled with enamel. Just under the decorative element the bow is old broken and incomplete.

A similar brooch is illustrated by Hattatt R. (2007), p. 303, no.387.
